Comments: The story of the women who served with the Australian Special Wireless Group during World War 2.
The Australian Special Wireless Group, AIF was a very secret group.
One batch of recruits for ASWG was told:- “Not only do you not exist, you never will have existed. You will remain for always unknown and unacknowledged. There will be no awards, no glory. There will be no medals for this unit.”
The function of the ASWG was to intercept enemy wireless transmission and monitor Allied wireless transmissions. The operating site at Kalinga in Brisbane, was in a tent, surrounded by a barbed wire fence. Some other sites operated in huts and sometimes in trucks. The operators were usually not aware of the contents of the messages they were receiving or sending.
